Why contractors need help with mortgage?

As an independent mortgage broker, we’ve tackled the unfair bias against limited company contractors, whose payment structure differs from PAYE.
We partner with banks and underwriters to navigate the complex landscape of contracting and simplify the process of using contract earnings alone for affordability assessments.
Today, we collaborate with an expanded network of contractor-friendly lenders, enabling contractors to secure mortgages based on their gross contract income, whatever the individual’s situation might be.

Why borrowing against day rate matters?

Traditional mortgage assessments often rely on net income, as shown in annual accounts and SA302 forms, which can significantly understate a contractor’s true earning potential.
Contractors often receive income in lump sums based on their contracts, not regular monthly salaries. This can make their net income appear lower after expenses and taxes. By considering gross contract income, lenders can provide a more accurate reflection of a contractor’s financial capability, enabling them to borrow larger amounts.
This approach acknowledges the unique earning structure of contractors and ensures they are not unfairly disadvantaged when seeking mortgage approval.

FAQ’S

Can I get a contractor mortgage if I have bad credit?

Yes, obtaining a contractor mortgage is possible even if you have bad credit. However, having a poor credit history may limit your options and result in higher interest rates or stricter lending criteria. It’s advisable to improve your credit score before applying for a mortgage or seek assistance from specialist lenders catering to individuals with bad credit.

How much deposit do I need for a contractor mortgage?

The deposit required for a contractor mortgage typically falls within 5% to 20% of the property’s value. The amount will depend on your financial circumstances and the lender’s requirements. A larger deposit often leads to more favourable terms and lower interest rates.

What documents do I need for a contractor mortgage application?

When applying for a contractor mortgage, you will generally need documents such as proof of identity (passport or driving license), proof of address (utility bills or bank statements), bank statements showing income deposits over several months, contract details with clients or agencies, tax returns or SA302 forms from HMRC, and any other relevant financial documentation.

Can I get a contractor mortgage if I’m self-employed?

Yes, contractor mortgages are available for self-employed individuals. Contractors and freelancers often fall into the self-employed category. However, lenders may require additional documentation to verify your income stability and affordability.

Can I switch my existing mortgage to a contractor mortgage?

Yes, switching your existing mortgage to a contractor mortgage is possible if you meet the lender’s criteria and demonstrate sufficient income. It’s best to consult with an independent financial advisor or speak directly with potential lenders to explore your options and figure out the best course of action.
